#2 MENU FOR THE PERFECT THANKSGIVING

Thoughts of a Thanksgiving feast can set one’s taste buds to watering. I propose harnessing students’ stomachs and attaching their memories of traditional Thanksgiving foods to vocabulary word meanings.

With Menu for the Perfect Thanksgiving vocabulary activity, students will create a dinner menu of their favorite dishes. Each food item students fill out on his or her menu worksheet needs to have a description written for guests to read at the feast. Students must use vocabulary words in their description of each food item.

Finally, students will draw pictures of their food items or perhaps find clip art images that match their descriptions. Download this tasty Thanksgiving vocabulary worksheet now!
